Catalog No. ：
Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2
Expression system ：
Symbol/Gene Name: ORF8
Alias: ORF8 protein,ORF8,Non-structural protein 8,ns8
Background: Plays a role in modulating host immune response (PubMed:31986261). May act by down-regulating major histocompability complex class I (MHC-I) (PubMed:34021074). May inhibit expression of some members of the IFN-stimulated gene (ISG) family including hosts IGF2BP1/ZBP1, MX1 and MX2, and DHX58 (PubMed:34177923). Binds to IL17RA receptor, leading to IL17 pathway activation and an increased secretion of pro-inflammatory factors. Contributes to cytokine storm during COVID-19 infection (PubMed:33723527).
Expression Host: E. coli
Formulation: 50 mM Tris-HCl (pH7.5), 200 mM NaCl, 20% glycerol
